After nearly 300 years, one of the most important alchemical and magical texts of all time has finally been translated into English! DuQuette In Goethe's immortal play, Faust, the brooding hero reflects upon the vainness of earthly knowledge and education. He opens a book of magic and is transfixed by an illustration of the magical universe. He resolves there and then to become a magician. The book that fired Goethe's imagination for that dramatic scene was a real book the book of forbidden knowledge that evoked every mystical cliché Opus Mago-Cabbalisticum et Theosophicum. This first ever English edition of Opus Mago-Cabbalisticum et Theosophicum will appeal to anyone interested in the history or practical aspects of alchemy, astrology, magick, Rosicrucianism, esoteric Freemasonry, and the Golden Dawn. A perfect addition to any library of classic esoteric literature, this edition reproduces famous illustrations.
"For the modern student of the Western Mystery Traditions, it is impossible to overestimate the importance of von Welling's work. Its influence can be traced through the doctrines and teachings of a host of European esoteric institutions--even those that helped give birth to the Golden Dawn and the Modern Occult Revival." --Lon Milo DuQuette
